Mattel and Ava DuVernay team up for her very own custom Barbie Doll. This will come just in time for the holidays and is the result of a successful social media campaign. The hashtag #AvaBarbie has been flooded with tweets as people celebrate another win for the first African-American woman to direct a movie nominated for Best Picture. All proceeds will go to Color Of Change and WITNESS.
